POWER OF THE PHARAOHS
The civilization we call ancient Egypt started about 5,000 years ago, when the rule of the pharaohs began. The pharaoh was the political and religious leaderof the Egyptian people, holding the titles: “LORD OF THE TWO LANDS” AND “HIGH PRIEST OF EVERY TEMPLE”. They made Egypt a rich and powerful nation, admired throughout the ancientworld. They also ordered the building of great temples for their gods and elaborate tombs for themselves. They believe that in return for the offerings of food and water that only thepharaoh could make, the gods would feed the souls of the Egyptians after death. Some pharaohs, such as Pepy ll, came to the throne when they were very young and stayed in power formany years. Sons inherited their father´s throne. Pharaohs’ wives were also important, but few women ever ruled the country. Teams of workers crafted beautiful objects for the pharaohsand their families. They used materials such as semi-precious stones and gold from the desert mines. The royal couple often displayed their riches in public. Processions, receptionsfor foreign visitors and visits to the temples were opportunities to show the power of the pharaohs.
